Artist Love...Claire Morgan

Her installations influenced by aspects of Minimalism and Arte Povera deal with 'change and the passing of time, and the transience of everything around us.'

Very beautiful installations create a majical atmosphere. She says, 'I use existing objects and shapes, and feel it is my job to tease out the unusual forms of beauty that already exist there, rather than attempting to create something new.'

'My work is about change and the passing of time, and the transience of everything around us. For me, creating seemingly solid structures or forms from thousands of individually suspended elements has a direct relation with my experience of these forces. There is a sense of fragility and a lack of solidity that carries through all the sculptures. I feel as if they are somewhere between movement and stillness, and thus in possession of a certain energy.'






 
 
I love these. There is something really poetic about them.

Photo Lust: Maisie Broadhead, 'Keep them sweet'

Oh My! Deep, deep sigh. How gorgeous is this photo? 'Keep them sweet'.
 
 
 
 
CDigital C-type print by Maisie Broadhead.

A rich, theatrical photographic interpretation of Simone Vouet’s 'An Allegory of Wealth'...

 
 
Here's the whole photographic image:
 
 
 
 
Broadhead, who graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2009, subtly uses contemporary objects in the works in place of the original drapery or literature, such as her inclusion of a Spot the Dog book and a pampers nappy.
 
So...my next exhibition 'Must-See' is at the National Gallery where Maisie Broadhead's image will be shown alongside others.
 
 
Check the National Gallery website...It says:
 
'View Old Master painting through a new lens with the National Gallery's first major exhibition of photography.
 
The exhibition explores early photography from the mid-19th century and the most exciting contemporary photographs, alongside historical painting. It takes a provocative look at how photographers use fine art traditions, including Old Master painting, to explore and justify the possibilities of their art.

Work by leading photographers such as Martin Parr, Craigie Horsfield, Sam Taylor-Wood, Richard Billingham, Julia Margaret Cameron and Gustave Le Gray will be on display beside key paintings from the National Gallery collection.'

As soon as I get a chance, in my holiday from teaching, I will be there!

Textile Artist: Charlene Mullen

Charlene Mullen's work is striking.

Lots of teeny tiny geometric embroidered stitches form beautiful monochrome landscapes.








I am lusting after the Paris cushion!


Plus cats!


Purrrrrrr!

Textile Artist: Amanda McCavour

Loving the works of Amanda McCavour, who creates with dissolvable fabric to form works of art of stitches 'floating' in air!













Hope everyone's happy & busy!
